  • McConnell is state's longest-serving Senator

    Thanks to the trust of the people of Kentucky, I’ve received the privilege of another term in the U.S. Senate. That’s an extraordinary gift from the voters, and I’m grateful to have the next six years to serve our Commonwealth and our country.

    As a new Congress and a new presidential administration begin, I look for lessons from great Kentuckians who have served our state in public office in the past. One who stands out is Wendell Ford.

    To the Editor:

    I am writing to publicly recognize Kentucky legislators who supported Senate Bill 96 and House Bill 162 in the 2008 legislative session. These bills require insurance companies to provide a health benefit for colon cancer testing. Gov. Steve Beshear signed these bills into law on April 15, 2008, and they are effective Jan. 1, 2009. Requiring insurance companies to provide for colon cancer screening will go a long way in helping reduce the impact of colon cancer in our state.

  • Newspapers: The future is now

    Changes are coming to almost all businesses in today’s world, and the economy is behind many of those changes. We see people doing things differently in the way they provide services, and often, those changes are not for the better.

    In our business here at The Springfield Sun, we realize we are part of a very different industry these days than just a few years ago. In fact, things are changing by the minute in the newspaper business in our country and even around the world.

  • The promise and the decision

    When you get married you become as one with your wife or husband. What you do affects him or her as surely as it affects you. You’re responsible to that person by a bond of love. That love demands you make every decision in your life centering on protecting that relationship.

    When you have children that bond and commitment multiplies.Major decisions you make at that point in your life can become complicated. It leads to conflict within you.

    Dear Editor,

  • The true story of Christmas

    The Birth of Jesus

    1In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2(This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3And everyone went to his own town to register.

    “The Lord is with you.”

    The Angel Gabriel speaking to Mary

    The quote you see above was said by the Angel Gabriel to Mary announcing the coming of Jesus Christ. Mary was about to conceive a child without ever knowing man. God knew, as good a woman as Mary was, she would still need his help, his divine protection, for the road that was ahead of her.

    Divine protection.
